ECUMENICAL PRAYER SERVICE WITH TAIZÉ SONGS

posted Oct 10, 2017, 7:32 AM by Westminster United Church

As a non-traditional form of spirituality, Taizé ecumenical worship is particularly popular with busy people. Music is its foundation. At the heart of this prayer service are Scripture readings surrounded by silence and beautiful music that can help one engage in meditative prayer.  Prayer then leads us to renew our trust in God. When we live with hearts that trust, life becomes meaningful for those around us. Please join us on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at our host Conrad Grebel University College Chapel (140 Westmount Road North, Waterloo, 519-885-0220).
